    I got some ordered too. I see you have two bantams and a single polish in your order. Both can sometimes end up bullied and pecked when housed with larger breeds. My Appenzellers peck at my polish hens crests, thankfully the polish can get away from them. You might end up with troubles keeping them all together.

    Meyer Hatchery! I've gotten multiple orders from them. They are always great about refunding you or shipping you more chicks if any die within 48 Hours from when you pick them. They also will give you a free sexlink chick if you promise to donate or give away some of its eggs.

    Awesome, I'm excited for you! Mine are arriving in March and I ordered a Polish as well, not a bantam though.

    Last time we had 2 bantams and 2 large and hilariously the only time I saw picking...it was the bantams teaching the big girls a lesson! :lau btw one of the big ones was a Marans! Other than that they pretty much saw each other as equals in ranking.
